Specialist law firm Marriott Harrison first engaged with IOR in 2019, when considering new working practices in their offices at Staples Inn, their home for over 25 years. Following a feasibility study highlighting the potential for consolidation and the subsequent impact of the pandemic, it became clear that a new space would better suit in terms of fit, flexibility and efficiency.
IOR developed a concept and new workstyle strategy for the 2nd floor at 80 Cheapside, coinciding with the release of Marriott Harrison’s new brand identity. A clean architectural language, with warm natural finishes, subtle colour hues on crittall glass and softening planting, created a modern workspace that still respects traditional values.
New settings include pods for focus/privacy, booths for less formal meetings, a revamped breakout and meeting suite, with ergonomic task furniture by MillerKnoll.
